The Yu Gardens and Bazaar also have a lovely Teahouse that is located in the middle of the large lake that forms the centerpiece of the Bazaar. The atmosphere is very relaxed and a traditional tea ceremony will be performed on request.

Every flavor of tea that you could think of is served in the tea house; however, at 25 Yuan it is quite expensive for a cup of tea. This seems to be the case in most of the Gardens and Bazaar as the prices in most of the shops are extremely inflated.

In 1 particular tea shop we saw a tin of tea on offer for 75 Yuan, that night we went to a local store near our motel and saw the same tin of tea for 11 Yuan!

Address: 218 Anren Street, Old City
